I recently decided to broaden my woodworking activities and undertake projects that included banding and stringing. I ordered a quantity of various banding etc and also made some myself. The problem was how to store this valuable inventory in a way that protected the stuff yet made it visible and accessible without handling it excessively and thus causing damage.
My solution was to build two wooden racks with clear hard plastic tubing laid on canted dowels set into the racks. Smaller tubes for stringing, larger for banding and even larger to store those special dowels from various species.
This storage system keeps all the inventory fully in view yet completely protected from dust and UV light – there is no need to handle them while determining a choice for the project being contemplated. Last but not least, it is a highly decorative and colourful way to store these materials.
